about this item

Tracking the development of the English Fair, Corble and Ford capture the diversity, sounds, smells and sensations that have beguiled the Great British public for centuries ? from the days of charter fairs through to modern winter wonderlands and theme parks. A nostalgic journey through the history of one of our most endearing and popular pastimes, A History of the English Fair is a fascinating look behind the curtain of this grand tradition: including detail on the food, prizes and showman’s way of life, and how the ?here today, gone tomorrow’ nature of the fair seems to bring with it fresh rules, transforming otherwise monochrome lives into a kaleidoscope of colour, sounds, smells and sensations, if only for a short while. This lavishly illustrated volume, full of the thrills, spills, laughter and mirth, evokes all the excitement and fervour of the fair comes to town and demonstrates how the fair is not only an integral part of English culture, but almost an expression of it.
